It's National Adopt A Shelter Pet Day!  So, what better day is there to discover a new best friend?

Rookie is 45 lbs of doggie goofball who’s still a puppy at heart. At just over a year old, he could keep you busy for quite a while!

Rookie loves to play, likes other dogs, and even knows how to fetch, sit, and lie down on cue! He is shy at first and it takes him some time to make new human friends. Rookie’s fearfulness is manageable, and he needs someone who is willing to take the time to build up a trusting relationship with him.

When you earn his trust, you’ll see his inner goof come out for sure! He is also loving and affectionate with people he knows and trusts. Rookie is house trained and is looking for a home without any young children. Call the shelter to learn more about this wonderful dog!, or just stop by and introduce yourself to your new best friend!
